DIY Carport Kits Sydney — Softwoods

The best, cost-effective method to building a new carport for your property is to get a DIY carport kit from Softwoods. For decades, we have been dealing with these products and have earned a reputation for providing top quality DIY carport kits in Sydney and throughout Australia. With our kits, you will find that assembling it with basic tools can be completed within a few days. Our kits most often come in one or two-car designs, but we can easily design custom carports that are wider, longer or higher than the average structure. We carry out a lot of testing to ensure the materials provided in your carport kit can withstand the Australian conditions and time has shown this. These reasons represent a significant saving of your time and money, and ordering a DIY carport kit has never been as easy as it is now.

Your carport is fully engineered to your specific site. Fully compliant, site-specific engineering means that your carport kit is specially designed for your actual site address. This is, so you know it passes the current building standards and will cope with the wind and weather in your local area. You generally have two options when deciding how to submit your council application. You can deal with your local council directly yourself, or you can use a private building certifier, who will apply on your behalf. You’ll need to include a site plan and the engineering when submitting the council building application forms. In nearly every case, council approval is required, even for a simple single carport or double carport size. For more information, get in touch with the Softwoods team.
